Episode 20 Preview, Dirty Socks

The problem with this Mellouli case is they’re trying to argue that a sock can be drug paraphernalia. Obviously there needs to be a separate ground of inadmissibility for possession of socks. Bottom line. Get on it, Congress.

On our next edition of C2C we will speak to former BIA member Lory Rosenberg and see if she would like to apologize for the BIA. If she does, we will have an extra long show since there is a lot to apologize for. (Please note that Stephen Robbins loves the BIA and all of its employees.) You can check out what Lory is up to here. Spoiler alert: she’s a better attorney than we are.

In addition to Lory we have Craig Shagin representing the Third…Third Circuit area, that is. Craig will talk about the Melllouli case that is currently being decided by the Supreme Court. A blog post he wrote on it can be found on our friend Cesar Cuauhtémoc García Hernández’s crImmigration blogCraig won the same argument regarding paraphernalia in the 3rd that was lost in the 8th. Hopefully he will mock the attorneys that handled it in the 8th. We don’t fight in nerd wars, we start nerd wars. 

We will also talk about the State of the Union (I didn’t watch it. Hope Stephen did. (Ed. I didn’t watch it either. Oops)), Muslim No-Go Zones and Stephen will break down the Superbowl. Last and probably least, we have a great Golden Cantaloupe. Here’s my nomination. Seriously, there has been some really dumb stuff said lately. Submit your favorite and if we pick yours we will say it on the air and put you name on our blog.  Sweet!

Episode 19

Episode 19 is up and running. Download it. Stream it. Do whatever you want with it. We don’t care.

Remember, you can find us on iTunes, on Stitcher, Facebook (or as my Mexican clients call it, “Face”), and elsewhere. Leave us a review. A couple great guests this week, and the return of the Golden Cantaloupe. Enjoy!

The search for the moderate muslim: Episode 19 preview

We have been looking all over for a moderate muslim to have on our show so they could condemn and apologize for the actions of the extremist muslims in Paris and we think we may have found one. We wanted to have Hassan Ahmed on but he was booked. Dude looks super cool, but we had to settle for Hassan Ahmad. Turns out he’s a great attorney, and he will (hopefully) apologize and condemn all bad acts by muslims over the years, especially algebra.

We will also talk to super great attorneys, Robert Gibbs and Neha Vyas from Gibbs, Houston and Pauw out of Seattle, WA. They’re coming on the show because anyone who coins the phrase “apathetic talons of the SF Asylum Office” deserves to be heard. It’s easy to throw your hands up in frustration when you find yourself bogged down in the quagmire that is “immigration.” Robert and Neha decided to sue, and (spoiler alert) they won.

We also randomly talk about stuff that has been in the news and we will be bringing back the Golden Cantaloupe.

EPISODE 18: The New Era

Episode 18 is our latest and greatest episode. We got new podcast equipment and no idea how to use it. (ok…Stephen has figured it out….I think….) On this episode we talk about the passing of one of my favorite politicians of all time, Mario Cuomo. He was a great governor and should have been President or at least a Supreme Court Justice.

Je suis Charlie! That’s all the rage after the horrific attacks in Paris last week. We discuss this…well, we begin to discuss this as it is pretty clear the ramifications from this story will be with us for some time.

We were going to talk to a super cool immigration attorney, Annie Schwartz, from a super cool law school but one thing led to another, directions go all fouled up and well….we will talk to her soon. Look her up. She’s cool.

We were able to talk to someone from the ACLU…yep, can you believe it? A reputable, national organization actually agreed to talk to us. Well, talk to me….Stephen had super important lawyery stuff to do so he didn’t have time to talk to ACLU attorney extraordinaire, Lindsay Nash.

We talked about family detention and Stephen had me ask her why the ACLU was trying to destroy Amurica. Lindsay has been around to all the super fancy and nice family prisons…detention….let’s call them family retreats and tells us about how nice they are.

Anyways, that was basically our show. You can click here or over there…just click an listen.

C2C New Year Update

Happy New Year to all our devoted fans! We haven’t forgotten you.

Matthew and I needed a few weeks to unwind, and we decided to put the show on a brief pause. We were going to air some “best of” materials, but it was kind of like going to the junk yard to pick out the “best” car. So we just scrapped it.

We have been talking about ways to improve the show and to provide something that might attract more listeners. We put that question to our listeners, and you basically responded “Less Stephen,” so we’re going to ignore you.

Seriously though, we’ve invested in some new equipment, and we’re excited about a whole new year of podcasting. Stay tuned!
